24: Eating Disorders & How to Help a Friend with Jan Courtney
24: Eating Disorders & How to Help a Friend with Jan Courtney
"And these [Eating disorder] behaviors are very often done under the guise of being healthy. So the third thing I look at is how much did the behaviors and or the thoughts interfere with daily living? Can the person enjoy going out to eat with a friend, or do they ever skip a party or a class because they just have to exercise? And very often, eating disorders begin as attempts to lose a few pounds, to get in better shape, or to eat healthier, a really common starting point. And then at some point, those good intentions take on a mind of their own and begin to run the show. "- Jan Courtney Show Details: Today we have Jan Courtney on the show, Jan is a Licensed Mental Health Clinician with over 20 years of  experience working in in private practice, inpatient, outpatient, and  community behavioral health settings.

13: Gym Culture with Leah & Marley from Campus Rec
"It's been important to me through the duration of my career to help empower women and folks who just don't see themselves in the weight room. It doesn't even necessarily have to be women, but to help empower them with the knowledge and confidence to go in and occupy space in the weight room."-- Leah Callovini Show Details: Leah and Marley are on the podcast today and we are discussing women in the weight room and why gym spaces can feel frustrating at times, for all genders and specifically those that don't feel as represented.  Historically women are more subject to bias in fitness culture, we explore that and unpack some ways the Rec is making their space one were everyone feels welcome and has the options they need to feel their best!

"My favorite way to describe it [Intuitive Eating] is it's really just the self care framework for eating. So it's a way to eat that is really self compassionate, it's weight neutral, it really focuses on how food makes us feel when we are nourished and we get enough to eat, but also when we enjoy eating." - Megan Meyer Show Details: Today we are talking to Megan about Intuitive Eating! Megan is from Northern Arizona University and works on campus bringing health and wellness topics to all. She gives some great examples of how to use the intuitive eating framework, ways students can get started and just be more gentle with themselves! This is a great one people!

Today we are joined by all three Campus Health Dietitians. They are answering common nutrition questions asked by students/people. This conversation is fun and they aren't holding back! Enjoy!

"Learn to be your own best expert, like really working and being attuned to your own body and what works and what doesn't work and what helps you function your best during the day, because no one knows your body like you know your body."- Lisa MacDonald "Keep up that curiosity, not only with foods that you're eating that may already be prepared, but try new foods that maybe you've heard about and haven't tried yet and take that curiosity into the kitchen and prepare your own foods, because that's all part of self care."-- Christy Wilson "...Food is so much more than just numbers and things that we put in our body that it's it's our culture, it's love, it's comfort, it's community, there's just so much more to food than what it says on the back of the food label." - Ashley Munro Links and Resources Mentioned in the show: Cooking on Campus Instagram Body Positive Arizona Thank you for listening we are Nutrition Navigators,  a program at Campus Health, in Health Promotion, here at the University of Arizona.
